Dragon Glass Nails Blood and Fire Swatches

A couple of weeks ago I posted about a new UK indie polish maker called Dragon Glass Nails and my first one came last week. Blood and Fire is inspired by Game of Thrones (which I haven't yet watched but intend to) and is an aubergine textured polish with gold glitter and a holographic flash. It dries to a textured semi matte finish and dries pretty slowly- resist the temptation to touch it too quickly.
The texture of this is similar to OPI liquid sands but slightly smoother. It's a fairly cold toned purple which is quite unusual and I really like.  It is best at two coats which is what I'm showing you.
But if texture is not your thing you can get a totally different look by top coating. Despite being very glittery and textured this polish is not top coat hungry, two coats is enough to totally even out the polish.
Look how gorgeous that is, you can still see that it is textured but you can't feel it and this way the gold glitter shines out.
Finally I thought I'd show you the beautiful bottle
And for those interested here is a brush next to a Barry M brush for comparison. Very easy to use, no bent bristles.
If you like indie polishes you should definitely check out Dragon Glass Nails. Tomorrow I'll show you the nail art I did on top of this polish.
